I spent time here in the late mid night. It’s the best place to relax in Pondicherry after hours. Better take room close to this beach.

As the name suggested it is small beach at the corner of the Promenade which is otherwise all rocky sea belt. One needs to walk down the rocky steps to get to the beach and it doesn't seem to be swimming friendly though. Almost all...More

It's fun to walk in the morning (especially early morning by sunrise) or in the evening just around sunset. A great place to relax or enjoy some brisk exercise in the morning.

Best place in the whole of Pondicherry. Very clean and breezy place. Nice eateries around but very crowded during weekends.

One of the best time to visit is early morning.. Beautiful place and best way to jog is take the mud route next to the pavement.. Clean and well maintained. One small issue is few stray dogs..otherwise a must visit place

It's a good place to walk along the promenade. Good beach with opportunity to paddle. There is a coffee shop but not many places in the shade or seats to sit on.

We visited this beach in the afternoon. The contrast between the  black rocks and the light  colored sand was  stunning. It is a nice beach and worth a visit. There are many rocks true to its name.

I've grown up in Pondicherry and that's why I'm absolutely biased towards Rock Beach in comparison with all the beaches in the world. Nevertheless, I enjoy the cleanliness of the place, and the fact that no vehicles are allowed from evening till morning, the pedestrians...More

Yes.. there is parking but the road is blocked off during evening time. So you'll have to park on a parallel road..
